3101935 - New Columns Added for Reporting for Time Zone Resilient Date Fields - Table Report/Canvas/Tiles/Report Story


A new version of some date fields (columns) for Table, Tile, Canvas, and Story reports is available, suffixed with either (Timestamp) or (Date).

From the 2111 delivery, there will be a change for non-UTC customers in case any timezone conversion is carried out. Instead of assuming the server time to be in UTC, a non-UTC server time is honored. Therefore customers potentially notice a change in the date time display that changes from an incorrect to a correct conversion. The platform time will be change to UTC 60 days prior to your transition to the hyperscaler environment as part of the Next Generation Cloud Delivery program. Please visit the SAP Next-Generation Cloud Delivery Dashboard, available on SAP for Me, for additional information, including your specific transition dates.

To identify these fields there will be the suffix in the new fields that indicates that the fields are resilient to time zone changes. The fields suffixed with (Timestamp) display a transaction date as per the tenant preferred timezone (or as per the logged in user's timezone), whereas the fields suffixed with (Date) are independent of time zone and always display the same values. To know more about tenant preferred time zone, refer to the Tenant Preferred Time Zone Available in Admin Center topic. To see the list of new fields, refer to the articles listed in the resolution section.
